Forum: Althanas Events & Tournaments

Sub-Forums Threads / Posts  Last Post

  1. 5000 years ago, a world spanning disaster washed away the Ancient Gods in a tide of war and fire. From that fire rose the Thayne, and at its height, 90% of Althanas identified as Thaynites. The Thaynites called that disaster "The Great Calamity." Though the influence of the Thayne has diminished over the years with the shattering of the tap, and other religions, sects, and cults of risen and fallen across Althanas, they all share a single common element in their mythology: a great disaster that created magic and gave birth to their varying religions. The events of "The Great Calamity" are lost to time, but old Raiaerean texts refer to the "nyotamkia" and "fukatmaki," the only two words in the Elfish with those roots. Scholars debate their meaning, but the most agreed upon translations in trade speak are "volcano" and "comet." Two weeks ago, as the sun began to shine over Corone, a comet appeared in the northern sky towards Berevar. One week later, Althanas was devastated by a natural disaster. It turns out the oddly circular Lotho Mountains in Lornius were not a mountain range, but rather a caldera for a supermassive volcano. The resultant eruption caused an earthquake that could be felt as far away as Melnach, and created a tsunami that destroyed Serenti on the western coast of Corone. Lornius was completely destroyed with thousands of lives lost. The entirety of Northern Althanas has been covered in a relentless ash cloud that threatens life throughout the land. Is this the coming of the apocalypse? An opportunity for the evils of the land to gain a foothold? A time for heroes to rise up to protect Althanas? A passing disaster that will one day be simply a footnote in Althanas' storied history? Only you can decideā€¦

  2. A new year ushers in new conflict. Armies representing the factions of Althanas have gathered. Weapons at the ready and battle cries in the wind, they clash violently. When the dust settles, one will stand.
